A WOW! Events Mixer – Planning for a Networking Event
Last month, members of National Association of Women Business Owners – Orange County (NAWBO-OC) congregated around our office to socialize over shrimp cocktails, learn about our event planning process, and fill up on some tasty treats and drinks from our exquisite caterers.
Set the Scene
Our office was picture perfect. Extending our orange and white color scheme to the decorative accents was a brilliant touch of color that left the room feeling fresh and warm. Soothing candles and stunning floral arrangements with a flawless amount of lively greenery set the mood leaving everyone relaxed and eager to mingle.
Bring an Appetite
Of course, no gathering is complete without delicious snacks. Our caterers outdid themselves and created beautiful trays of assorted appetizers. Everyone adored the shrimp cocktail, bread, fruit, and the always popular meat and cheese platter. We displayed the variety of food buffet style for our guests to enjoy at their leisure.
For dessert, we added a flair of fun to our professional setup with a full candy station. This was where we found ways to play with color, adding bright pops of orange chiffon fluffed up around glass jars filled with tasty treats. We chose a smorgasbord of orange and white sugar crystal gummies, beautifully wrapped chocolates, our favorite orange starbursts and swirled lollipops. Above the candy bar is where we placed party favors for our guests to grab on their way out. WOW! Events Mugs filled with sweets were the perfect little thank you for visiting our office and being a part of our WOW! Moments.
Share and Learn
To break the ice, we provided name tags, ice breakers, and folders containing information about WOW! Events and who we are.
While the women were socializing over wine, sangria, and snacks our very own president, Tiffany Brown, was ready to blow everyone away with sharing knowledge about event planning. Tiffany, an expert in everything events, intrigued everyone with her presentation on the tools to creating a WOW! event. This was a fantastic way for us to introduce WOW! Events and what we are about while showcasing how talented our planners are.
By the end of the event we were feeling very accomplished. Hosting a mixer for the ladies of NAWBO-OC allowed us to meet amazing people, learn about their companies and celebrate women in business while showing off our talents of creating memorable WOW! worthy events.
